're not going to have four more years of obama. >>> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in the first presidential debate. the news hours jim lehr moderates. watch and engage with c-span including the live debate preview at 7 p.m. eastern, debate at 9, and post debate, calls, reactions, e-mails, and tweets. follow our coverage on c-span, c-span radio, and online at c-span.org. now on booktv, peter takes about why our economy produces great wealth and great poverty at the same time. he offers suggestions on how to improve the conditions on tens of millions of americans living below the poverty line. this is about 50 minutes. >> well, thank you so much, debra. i am totally delighted to be here and thanks to busboys and poets for allowing me to be here, to talk with you, and, of course, thanks to all of you for coming. i see a lot of -- a lot of friends, some of my students are here. they already got their grades so no -- [laughter] nobody was threatened. this is -- we could spend a lot of time talking about how bad things are now, but we all know. it's a terrible time for a lot of reaso
if you look at what they have said on this issue, both obama and romney's plans are vague. if i were moderating the debate that is coming october 3rd, i would spend about half of it asking them what would you do specifically. give us the diagnosis of the plan -- [applause] and tell us what you're really going to do. and part of that question is there has to be a willingness to compromise, and there has to be an innate willingness to do things that are painful for your side. i'm going to stop there, and we'll do questions. one more story. remember years ago the head of simon & schuster after i had published one of my books took me to dinner in new york city at one of these restaurants where you would never want to go where you have to pay. [laughter] and he said what's your next book going to be about in and i said, oh, well, i haven't decided. i'm going to do some thinking, some reading, some research. and he looked at me and said, what? i said, yeah, i want to do thinking, reading, reporting, weighing the alternatives, and he said why are you going to waste your time?

will number one, don't hurt yourself. rule number two, when one state and when the vice-president to debate. i think that adds up to the governor or senator, and we will see. so how to move a million voters in these ten states. now have already told you, mitt romney is extraordinarily well qualified and proving that. speech after speech, the speech in israel and the speech before the veteran foreign war was great, and i assume the convention speech will be all month. and and so the question will come down to the argument that is made about president obama, and it is not really going to be an argument so much as it will be about reminding people. when i set out to do the brief against obama isolated out. actually get my radio audience. how many of the listen to the radio show. thank you. how many of you call the show? isn't that remarkable. i always ask people. for people. if i have been me, nice. i'm not rochon to even my liberal colors, but it is interesting that that is about four out of 200 plus people who have actually called the radio show. pick up the phone. it is a national show. in 100
